Eurostar’s New Summer Rail Service To Southern France

EUROSTAR, the high-speed passenger service linking London and mainland Europe is launching a new direct service from London to three popular holiday destinations in the South of France – Lyon, Avignon and Aix-en-Provence

The new weekly spring service, which complements Eurostar’s existing Avignon services, is perfect for travellers looking to secure an early summer getaway. The service will be offered for a trial period during May and June 2013  alongside Eurostar’s existing weekly summer services to Avignon

Passengers who choose the new  Lyon-Provence service for travel from 4 May to the 29 June 2013 will enjoy a direct non-stop journey from London St Pancras International to Lyon, Avignon and Aix-en-Provence

On the return leg, they will disembark in Lille to complete the necessary security and passport checks required for transit through the Channel Tunnel before re-boarding a dedicated Eurostar service to the UK

Return fares start from £99 for Lyon and £109 for Avignon and Aix-en-Provence in Standard class and £199 and £249 in Standard Premier respectively.

The only drawback to this journey is that prospective travellers from Liverpool may have to spend two nights in London (out and back), because the Eurostar service would probably leave St Pancras early/mid morning, in order to reach Provence later in the day.
